Liberal comedian Amy Schumer says that the “nightmare” of the Trump presidency has been so difficult on her that she’s doing less stand-up comedy.
Here’s what Trump did to Amy Schumer
In an interview with Time Magazine, Schumer tear-fully lamented that President Trump’s first term is such a “nightmare” that she doesn’t find much to joke about.
“I’ve been doing less standup, just because it’s not funny,” she said in the interview, referring to how politics has been such a discouragement for her.
Schumer went on a monologue of how much Trump is a “nightmare” but few details are included of her comments.
“Is this the biggest bummer of an interview?” she asked.
Schumer was publicizing her new movie, I Feel Pretty, about a woman who suffers a head injury and wrongly imagines that she is as attractive as a supermodel.
The comedian said that the movie would have been better with a woman of color as the leading actress instead of herself.
“It’s not a perfect movie,” she says of I Feel Pretty, which she also produced. “It would be great if my role had been played by a woman of color and there were more trans people in it, more people with disabilities.” She readjusts the pillow behind her. “But it’s a step in the right direction, I hope.”
Her movie has been criticized by some on social media, even though it hasn’t been released yet, because they said the movie trailer contained themes of “body shaming.”
